    I ordered a iPhone 7 32gb from T-Mobile and have noticed that the battery life compared to my iPhone 6s has been very poor. The phone will not last a day just in standby mode. Also when i watch videos (primary Youtube) the phone gets very warm and the battery drains fast.

    I thought the iPhone 7 was supposed to have improved battery life. Is anyone else having these issues or do I have a defective phone?

    Not on my phone even when I exhaust it down to 10% and recharge again for phone calls. Average weather here is 85+ and humid.

    It could be a faulty phone yes.
    Before messing around restoring it and setting up as a new phone etc to try and fix the problem try this simple test ..
    Make a note of the battery percentage (as long as it's not 100%) then switch it off for 5 hours, then check if it has drained. If it drains almost 10% switched off you have faulty hardware in your phone and you need to get it replaced.
    If it doesn't drain while it's switched off try a dfu restore and set it up as a new phone not from a backup
    Cheers

    I assume you meant plus.,
    Did they let you pay the difference then?
    I wasn't sure if they would allow this but the thought crossed my mind when I took my faulty 7 in.

    Yes, sorry I have been reading so much 6s lately on this forum. I refused to take 7 and I needed urgently so I paid the difference amount.
